We have been with SLC for 6 years now with 2 kids moving through the program starting 11 months and would recommend without hesitation. Valentyna runs a facility with high expectations for her staff and does not hesitate to resolve concerns when brought up. What sold us on the facilities when we did the tour 6 years ago was when she knew all the kids names and seemed to genuinely care for the kids. Highly recommend!
It was an absolute blessing when we found SLC soon after moving to Oakville. All our three children have been there (one still is) in the last six years, and we wouldn't have it any other way. In fact, I don't think the kids would have it any other way either. Not going to daycare was the only threat (though not credible) that worked. They absolutely loved Mondays (every weekday for that matter)! Apart from being a lot of fun, they learned a lot and were well prepared for kindergarten when the time came (in both the academic and the social sense).
The teachers are wonderful! They are nurturing, attentive and patient, and most of all, the kids love them. (Our boys still talk fondly of their teachers at SLC - all of them). I'm always in awe of them when I see what they accomplish on a daily basis...especially how composed they are at the end of the day, at least on the outside. :)
Valentina is doing a fabulous job running the show and I highly recommend SLC for your little one. Of course, the location close to the GO station doesn't hurt either. :)
The seniors at Oakville Seniors Citizens Residents love every Halloween when the Children from SLC Daycare come in to visit and do their Halloween parade for them. The seniors get such enjoyment out of seeing the children sing their songs, see their costumes year after year and watch them trick or treat. Here at OSCR we try to bridge the Inter- generational gap by inviting SLC Daycare to our facility, and we truly believe when older adults contribute to the well- being of youth, it cultivates a sense of purpose and extends benefits both ways. We hope the SLC Daycare children will continue to visit us every year to bring joy to our residents.
"We are so blessed to have found SLC Daycare. The teachers are fun, attentive and patient, and genuinely care deeply for each and every one of the children. The programs at SLC are interesting and engaging, from music classes to Monkeynastix to yoga, and the children enjoy delicious catered meals that are healthy and nutritious.
The prices are extremely competitive and our daughter has flourished under the care of Valentyna and the teachers at SLC. Our daughter has some medical complexities and SLC has worked with us to ensure that she is given every chance for inclusion and success. SLC are truly a special group of people and we are grateful that our daughter gets to grow under their watchful eyes. "
At SLC Daycare you’re part of a family. You are greeted with a smile and enthusiastic interest in your children. Valentyna sets the tone, and is always available if you need something. Between them, our boys have been through every stage of SLC - Infant room to School Age. I have always been impressed by the care and compassion shown by the teachers in each classroom. We love SLC and recommend it often.
My both kids have been going to SLC for 3 years now, and it is been worth every dollar. The kids don’t just sit and play on their own there, they do yoga, the do gymnastics, they learn letters, one day I heard them counting in french. They learned how to hold a spoon there, they learned how to get dressed by themselves, how to cooperate with others, how to resolve conflicts. Not to mention potty training was a breeze - the teachers were so accommodating, that the whole transition didn’t take longer than 2 weeks. At the age of 2! The food is great, lots of variety, and always fresh - I see the caterer delivering it every day. Valentyna knows every child and parent by their name, and is always there to answer any questions. Bottom line, great place!
